  • EdgeR test for differential expression.

    I'm reading the Robinson and Smyth's 2008 paper: Small-sample estimation of negative binomial dispersion, with applications to SAGE data

    Wondering if anyone can clarify the final test being used to determine differential expression for me? The variant of fishers exact.

    As I'm reading it, from section 5.2 (and from the help(exactTest()), it seems that the adjusted counts (Za and Zb) for the two conditions are added together to form another NB distribution and then it tests where in the summed distribution, the counts for Za are? That seems ... overly simple.

    Is that right? Am I even looking in the right place for an explanation of how this works? Robinson et. al's 2010 edger note suggest this paper. And I can't see it clearly explained in the Zhou, Lindsay, Robinson 2014 paper either.

    Cheers
    Ben.

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
